Fort Worth, Texas: Big Jackalope on a Roof

Antelope antlers on an eight-foot-tall bunny, built in 1982 by artist Nancy Lamb. Several businesses have come and gone beneath it, but they've all wisely kept the Jackalope.

5925 Camp Bowie Blvd, Fort Worth, TX
I-30 exit 9-B, then turn south onto Camp Bowie Blvd/US 377. South only a couple of blocks; the Jackalope is on a rooftop on the northbound side.
Lit at night. Local health policies may affect hours and access.

Nancy said she also received help creating the jackalope from other artists: Russ Eddy and Doug Blagg, both in California now.

Big Jackalope

This statue was created by Fort Worth-based artist Nancy Lamb as a commission from owners of the "Jackalope Store" in the early 1980s. It is 8 feet tall, constructed of wire and fiberglass, and has been repainted at least once. It was not particularly well received at first by the community, but over the years has become a Fort Worth icon!

Giant Jackalope on a Roof

This picture is of the original Jackalope Store on Camp Bowie Blvd. in Fort Worth, TX, taken in the early 1990's. This store has since been demolished. The jackalope statue has since been moved onto the roof of a car dealership next door.

Jackalope Statue

This is a very recent picture of the Jackalope statue on Camp Bowie Boulevard, in Fort Worth, TX. The original Jackalope store is no more; it appears that the used car dealership next door bought the statue and put it on its own roof. Somewhere I have some pictures of the original Jackalope store, which I took about 10 years ago.
